Living in Mulgrave

Very much a “family suburb”, the attraction has largely stemmed from the exclusive private schools as well as successful public schools all within the immediate vicinity. Couple this with numerous parks, bus lines and the recently revamped Waverley Gardens Shopping Centre and it’s easy to see its attraction.

Many homes in Mulgrave are 1960’s and 1970’s brick -veneer style set on large allotments – some suitable for dual – occupancy or even greater subdivision. Excitingly, Mulgrave also has a new and exciting precinct; the Waverley Park Estate. Here, modern houses are being built on manageable allotments. The homes in this newly created neighbourhood offer the open plan design, space, size and style sought by a new generation of buyers.

The junction to the Monash Freeway and East Link Tollway at Police Rd in Mulgrave gives local residents ease of access to literally anywhere in Melbourne, making Mulgrave and surrounds ever more appealing.
